Nasal Dilator Strips for Rhinoplasty

2016-06-01 15:23:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In this study, the study team will investigate the validity and role of nasal dilator strips (NDS), a novel method to determine the site of nasal valve compromise (NVC), in the pre-operative evaluation. The method involves placing the strip sequentially at the upper and lower lateral cartilage and recording the location of the optimal airway based on patient's subjective symptoms.

Investigators seek to assess surgical outcomes in participants undergoing rhinoplasty based on pre-operative NDS classification. The Nasal Obstruction and Septoplasty Effectiveness (NOSE) instrument will be used to evaluate subjective symptoms of nasal obstruction, before and after the operation and comparing these scores.The results will help determine the effectiveness and predictive value of NDS in isolating the site of NVC.

Investigators seek to assess surgical outcomes in participants undergoing rhinoplasty based on pre-operative NDS classification. The Nasal Obstruction and Septoplasty Effectiveness (NOSE) instrument will be used to evaluate subjective symptoms of nasal obstruction, before and after the operation and comparing these scores.The results will help determine the effectiveness and predictive value of NDS in isolating the site of NVC.

Additional study aims are to determine the specificity and predictive value of nasal dilator strips in determining the location of obstruction in patients with nasal valve compromise, and to assess the role of nasal dilator strips in supplementing or replacing current approaches for pre-operative evaluation of nasal valve compromise.

The target population for this study is patients at the Emory Aesthetics Center who are undergoing functional rhinoplasty for nasal valve compromise and obstruction.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.

The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.

Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.

Diagnostic measurement of the nose and its cavity through acoustic reflections. Used to measure nasal anatomical landmarks, nasal septal deviation, and nasal airway changes in response to allergen provocation tests (NASAL PROVOCATION TESTS).

The partition separating the two NASAL CAVITIES in the midplane. It is formed by the SEPTAL NASAL CARTILAGE, parts of skull bones (ETHMOID BONE; VOMER), and membranous parts.
